Tiger Attack
Nagpur/Chandrapur: Close on the heels of a young farmer mauled to death by a tiger in Wardha district, two farmers in Chandrapur district were attacked and injured by the ferocious feral on Wednesday evening.

Identified as Gopal Dhone and Uttam Dhone, residents of Sonegaon Begde under Chimur Nagar Parishad, the two farmers had taken their cattle to Kotgaon Shivar for foraging on Wednesday evening. Around 7 pm, a tiger lying in wait ambushed them. Both received serious injuries. Had the nearby people not raised an alarm, the tiger would have killed Gopal and Uttam Dhone. The shouts of people forced the big cat to escape in nearby jungles. The injured farmers were taken to Sub-District Hospital and are being treated. The Forest Department officials were informed about the tiger attack.
